REVIT MEP FITTINGS FAMILY

are an incredible feature, offering libraries of ready-made objects that can be used in CAD drawings or customized to fit any project. Families can also be modeled from scratch and shared with colleagues and clients. This course dives into Revit MEP families, a specific family type for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design.

Author Eric Wing shows how to model MEP families on a topic-by-topic basic, so you can learn the ins and outs of family creation while modeling exactly what you need for your drawings today. The course starts with a review of the basics: parameters, connectors, dimensions, and various family modeling techniques. Then Eric investigates specific parts and systems that can be created with Revit families: electrical panels and junction boxes, recessed and track lighting, HVAC systems with ducting and air terminals, and pipe systems. Along the way, he introduces the reference planes, parameters, shapes, and hosting options necessary to build families on your own.

 

 

REVIT MEP FITTINGS FAMILY Course Topics include:

  • What is a Revit family?
  • Using the Revit Family Editor
  • Working with family parameters
  • Constraining families with dimensions
  • Creating extrusions, sweeps, and blends
  • panels and junction boxes
  • Creating electrical lighting
  • Modeling mechanical HVAC systems
  • Creating pipe systems
  • Annotating families

welcome to REVIT MEP FITTINGS FAMILY. In this course, we’ll look at electrical power, lighting, mechanical and piping families. I’ll start by showing you what families are, then I’ll show you how to create reference planes, parameters, and all of the 3D shapes needed to build a proper MEP family. We’ll learn how to model electrical devices, panels, mechanical equipment, and duct and pipe fittings, and accessories. We’ll be covering all these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques.
